We have marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade, alongside the Mothers United Against Violence, Puerto Rican Day Parade, and  Latino Fest. 

Field Trips

Hartford PAL aims to provide fun and exciting experiences by exposing youth to opportunities they would otherwise never have while creating positive memories.  We also use field trips as rewards and incentives for youth that have excelled in specific life skill areas.  Field trips have included roller skating, bowling, movies, pumpkin picking at Cavanna Farms, Breakfast Brunch at Trumbull Kitchen, Baseball Camp with the Cal Ripken Sr foundation, Riverfront activities, Lake Compounce, Hartford Yardgoats, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox games, LazerQuest, Bounce U, Flight, Ski Sundown, Hartford Hawks and UConn Husky basketball games, Disney on Ice, Hartford Wolfpack, Uconn Hockey, Ringling Brothers Circus, Beardsley Zoo, Ice Skating, Pilot Pen, Nutcracker, Hartford Stage and the Wadsworth Athenaeum. Our goal is to expose our kids to as many different and meaningful experiences as possible.
